What we say: 4 stars

This five-room homestay is located on the road that runs parallel to Si Suwan Khiri Road and is run by a very friendly (and chatty) woman. It's a great choice for anyone seeking a cheap bed and "local" experience, although the owner does speak excellent English. Accommodation is dorm style with single mattresses on the floor of simple rooms that come in a few sizes. If you're with a small group it's possible to book a whole room though you'll still need to pay the per person rate. Cold water bathrooms are shared and a kitchen can be used for preparing meals. Drinking water, tea and coffee are provided for free but the owners don't have time to offer hot meals. There are however ample eating choices nearby and the owners did mention that they often invite guests to join them for dinner on a more casual basis. The location about midway between the city centre and lake is also a strong suit, and the guests we talked to were very happy with their stay. Boat trips can be arranged, bicycles and motorbikes can be rented, and the homestay collaborates with the Baan Unrak Orphanage and Animal Sanctuary, a small non-profit that operates an orphanage and an animal care centre that takes care of stray dogs. Recommended.
